the duchess stops sipping from the wrapped reindeer, holds her straw between just her left mandibles, and vigorously cleans all her eyes multiple times with the plumose antennae - repurposed legs, really - attached to the top plate of her torso. maybe you accidentally blew blood into her eyes? but that'd only be the front pairs. the hairs are mostly teal, with a couple purple on her right antenna. you consider apologizing, for whatever you did wrong. she seems more relaxed, though, and her antennae return to resting-position without flicking off moisture. her lower mandibles descend slightly, and her upper right leg pushes against a large rock two meters behind her. she turns cross-legged, her lower body facing you at a PI/3 rad angle. her armoured skirt got pulled somewhat down by the sliding, revealing the upper part of her right hip. you consult your cultural handbook, and blush. both antennae twitch low to the back of her head.
